Cascades Golf Course
The Cascades course, located in the southern part of the City of Jackson, is a course that a golfer must play if he or she wants to play one of the best public courses in Michigan. The course was established in 1929 and is operated by the Jackson County Parks Department. For golfers convenience, in 2008, a state of the art GPS was added to their fleet of golf carts. We also have been working on expanding the merchandise in our pro shop to offer a variety of accessories, apparel, and golf balls. We will be serving alcohol by the end of the summer.
The Cascades is challenging, long by most standards, and features water and beautiful scenery. The signature hole on #17 is a par four measuring 383 yards from the white tees. A creek runs across the fairway 240 yards out and the approach is played to a severely sloped green guarded by trees and bunkers.
Received a 4 Star rating from Golf Digest's Places to Play.
Opening May 2016, 9 Hole Footgolf!
This innovative hybrid of golf and soccer is a sport where players kick a soccer ball into a 21" cup in as few shots as possible.
1. Wear appropriate clothing - golf cap, collared shirt, and argyles socks are preferred.
2. Your ball must be easy to identify.
3. Review the score card and wait for your turn. Make sure your kick will not interfere with other players.
4. Kick off your ball from a position up to two yards behind the tee markers.
5. The ball must be played in a single movement. You are not allowed to push the ball with the top or bottom of your foot. Your foot should be set separate from the ball, clearly behind, before each kick.
6. Wait to play until the ball has completely come to rest. (It is not legal to stop the ball from rolling with the wind.)
7. Play the ball from where it lies: You are not allowed to move the ball or remove jammed objects. Exception: You may mark the spot and lift the ball when it may obstruct the other player’s kick or ball in any way.
8. The player farthest from the hole is the first to kick the ball.
9. The order of play is established based on the score of the previous hole. The player with the best score will kick off first on the next hole followed by the second, etc.
10. If the ball lands in a water hazard, retrieve or replace it within 2 steps from the closest land point from where the ball entered the hazard, receiving a one stroke penalty or you can place the ball at the position of the previous kick and receive a one stroke penalty.
